White Chicken Chili


  • 1 onion, chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 3 (15-1/2 ounces) cans Great Northern beans, drained and rinsed (other white beans can be substituted like cannellini)
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
  • 1 (4 ounces) can diced green chilies, drained
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • Tabasco sauce (optional)


In a large stockpot over medium heat, sauté onions in oil until tender. Stir in remaining ingredients except for the sour cream and cheese.

Simmer for 30 minutes, stirring frequently, until heated through. Shortly before serving, add sour cream and cheese. Stir until cheese is melted. If you like a little kick add a few shakes of Tabasco sauce.
